Whimsy for Lydia

Saturday, 8 December 2018

 My friend Lydia was hosting the Mix-ability Challenge at Splitcoaststampers on Friday called Put a Bird On It! I said I would play along, however I did not get my card done until this morning, but I did get it done and even added the Inspiration Challenge to my card covering today's challenge. 
 I have done a very whimsical freehand card using watercolours in almost every colour under the sun, just changing the shapes and stems. And for a change, I painted on canvas textured acrylic paper. It is very easy to work on, and gives a totally different look to the project. I thought it perfect for this kind of card.
 My bird is perched on the top of one of the flowers, he's a chubby little one. Once finished with my painting, I splattered with acrylic paint and watercolour paint then attached it to a black card base. 
I hope you have enjoyed this card and wish to thank you for visiting today.


  1. I love this artsy card filled with so many gorgeous colors, Kia!
    Fantastic arrangement of the colors and shapes. Adding the perched bird is a great idea - it gives liveliness to the card.

  3. This card is BREATHTAKING!! I LOVE your freehand watercolor. This is a work of art and should be framed!!

  4. Wow..Kia, I LOVE your artsy watercolored and acrylic painted flowers and puffed up bird (to stay warm). All your colors add so much happiness to your fun and creative design. TFS my friend. Hugs..Nancy
